RARITAN, NJ, March 28, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson today announced the VOYAGER PAD study met its primary efficacy and principal safety endpoints, demonstrating the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily) plus aspirin (100 mg once daily) was superior to aspirin alone in reducing the risk of major adverse limb and cardiovascular (CV) events by 15 percent in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) after lower-extremity revascularization, with similar rates of TIMI major bleeding. VOYAGER PAD is the only study to show a significant benefit...
AJP Rep 2020; 10: e113-e117 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1709186Detailed clinical and pathological features of placental mesenchymal dysplasia (PMD) complicated by preeclampsia (PE) are unknown. A 39-year-old nulliparous woman was referred at 19 weeks gestation. Ultrasound examination identified a fetus with severe growth restriction (−2.8 SD) and a markedly thickened placenta with many cystic structures suggestive of PMD. At 21 weeks, the patient developed severe hypertension (180/95 mm Hg) with marked proteinuria and an elevated serum soluble fms-like tyrosine-kinase-1 (sFlt-1) level (47,000 pg/L). The pregnancy was ...
Abstract Excessive weight is associated with periodontitis because of inflammatory mediators secreted by the adipose tissue. Periodontal impairments can occur during pregnancy due to association between high hormonal levels and inadequate oral hygiene. Moreover, periodontitis and excessive weight during pregnancy can negatively affect an infant ’ s weight at birth. Objective This observational, cross-sectional study aimed to evaluate the association between pre-pregnancy overweight/obesity, periodontitis during the third trimester of pregnancy, and the infants' birth weight. Methodology The sample set was divided int...

Conclusion: sFlt-1/PlGF ratio at 16-18 weeks of gestation in elderly gravida has a high sensitivity for predicting preeclampsia, especially early onset preeclampsia. PMID: 32202171 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Li M, Qian L, Yu J, Zou Y Abstract Objectives: The protective effects of interleukin(IL)-35 against injury to human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) induced by the serum of pre-eclampsia patients were analyzed.Methods: This cross-sectional study included 24 patients with pre-eclampsia (PE) and 24 normotensive pregnant women.Results: Compared to normotensive pregnant women, patients with pre-eclampsia had lower IL-35 levels (P
